Forging Small Pieces of History 

Artist George Avila Brings the Past Into the Present 



Most people who have an avid interest in 
history are intrigued by what life was like years ago. 
But longtime Mattapoisett resident George C. Avila 
doesn't have to wonder — he has immersed himself 
in some of the proudest moments this area has ever 
seen through the eyes of those who lived it. 

Mr. Avila is truly a man of many parts — a 
person whose eyes come alive when discussing his 
passion: interesting tidbits of local history. Having 
formerly served as director of the New Bedford 
Glass Museum and a founding member of the New 
Bedford Glass Society, he contributed a fascinating 
cache of local lore to the city of his birth. It remains 
one of his proudest accomplishments among many. 

"I set up the first glass exhibit at the New 
Bedford Whaling Museum in 1968," Mr. Avila said. 
"Then, we expanded and opened the Glass Museum 
in 1976 which closed last year." 

His interest in the variety of glass crafts and 
etchings from the Greater New Bedford area also 
spawned one of the foremost books on the subject — 
The Pearpoint Glass Story — which was initially 
published in 1968 and has since sold worldwide. 

"I have a picture of Grace Kelly, who had a 
copy of my book in her library," he noted. "She 
collected some of the glass pieces that I wrote 
about." 

Although he is widely known for his 
contributions to New Bedford's past glory — 
including a brief stint at the Whaling Museum — it 
is Mr. Avila's more recent work in his place of 
residence for the last 50 years that warrants special 
attention. 

For over a year now he has been busy 
designing and crafting elegant holiday ornaments 
and suncatchers etched in thin plated gold for local 
organizations. These collectible ornaments or 
suncatchers have become quite a hit with residents 
in and around the tri-town area, and have served to 
raise some much-needed funds for non-profit 
groups. 

Mr. Avila explained that he essentially 
sketches the design for each ornament to scale and it 
then goes through a process very similar to glass 
etching to lightly engrave the image onto the round, 
gold medallion. Though his renditions of such 
historic landmarks as Mattapoisett's Seahorse, 
Dartmouth's Old Southworth Library, and 
Wareham's Tobey Hospital are stunningly accurate 



and well-crafted, Mr. Avila quickly denies himself 
the title of "artist." 

"I never went any further than art classes in 
grade school," said Mr. Avila, who worked as a 
foreman at Morse Twist and Drill for 38 years. "As a 
young kid, I would draw animal pictures. I 
eventually started to sell these drawings to Cherry 
and Company (later known as Cherry and Webb) 
and C. F. Wings in New Bedford. I managed to make 
some extra money to buy clothes for school." 

Many of these quaint depictions of animals in 
human clothing made the rounds throughout the 
Greater New Bedford area and Mr. Avila's signed 
drawings have become something of a local 
commodity. "I still have people who come up to me 
and tell me that they have a drawing of a pig I did 
hanging in their house," he said. 

Though Mr. Avila later applied his talents to 
scrimshaw while working at the Whaling Museum 
— both old fashioned and modern — it was his 
intricate designs for cup plate etchings at the Glass 
Museum that best transferred to his new ornament- 
making specialty. 

"It was just a matter of my being in the right 
place at the right time," he said. "I was first 
approached (in 1993) to do an ornament for The 
Friends of the Elderly (in Mattapoisett), of which I'm 
a member. I designed the Seahorse ornament, which 
sold very well. It just snowballed after that." 

Mr. Avila has graciously volunteered his 
services for over a dozen ornaments since, all of 
which have been crafted for a local non-profit group 
in the hopes of raising money for their efforts. 

On the cover: Mattapoisett resident George C. Avila poses 
outside the Mattapoisett Public Library with the ornament/ 
suncatcher he designed and fashioned in the historic building's 
image. All proceeds from the sale of this ornament benefit the 
library. (Photo by Kenneth J. Souza).

In addition to the Seahorse, Mr. Avila has 
crafted ornaments featuring Center School and the 
Ned's Point Lighthouse prior to 1923 (for 
Mattapoisett's Friends of the Elderly); Dartmouth's 
Old Southworth Library (for Dartmouth's Friends of 
the Elderly); Mattapoisett's Town Hall and Shipyard

and Tobey Hospital in Wareham (for the Tobey

Hospital Women's Guild). 

One of Mr. Avila's more recent contributions 
is a rendition of Mattapoisett's Free Public Library, 
which was designed under the auspices of The 
Friends of the Elderly. Proceeds from the sale of this 
ornament, however, will go directly to the library for 
improvements and the acquisition of new titles. 

Between the time he spends offering his 
talents to benefit local groups and actively 
participating alongside his wife, Dee, in activities 
with The Friends of the Elderly such as arts and 
crafts, the program for the deaf, bingo games, the 
walking group, and SHARE program, one might 
think that George Avila has little time to devote to 
anything else. 

On the contrary ... his interest in local history 
continues to grow. He recently completed an 
impressive book project on Captain Ansel Weeks, the 
Mattapoisett native who was master carpenter of the 
whaler Acushnet, the ship aboard which Herman 
Melville traveled to research his classic, Moby Dick. 

Although it was actually Nantucket native 
Captain Valentine Pease who commanded the ship 
during the journey, the book — titled The Captain 
Weeks Story — does touch on the rich history of the 
Acushnet and the details surrounding Melville's

adventure and his jumping ship with Toby Green. 

Mr. Avila noted that although the area seems 
to emphasize the importance of whalers like The 
Wanderer and the Quirks W. Morgan, among scholars, 
it is the Aaishnet which remains famous because of 
Melville's classic novel. 

The book also chronicles Captain Weeks' 
efforts to start the Universalist Church in 
Mattapoisett and his role in separating the town 
from what was once Old Rochester. "(Captain 
Weeks) was born and lived in the Parker house on 
North Street," he said. "And he lived there for most 
of his life ... some 50 years." 

Mr. Avila even suggested that Herman 
Melville probably based his archetypical Captain 
Ahab on Captain Weeks, or an amalgamation of 
Captain Weeks, Captain Pease, and other he 
encountered while doing research for the literary 
classic. 

Although there are no formal plans to 
publish the book on Captain Weeks at the present, 
such an important piece of local history would 
surely find a place among Mr. Avila's other 
accomplishments. 

Remarkably, as he prepares to celebrate his 
84th birthday next month, Mr. Avila still devotes

Mattapoisett Selectmen's Meeting 
January 25, 1994 

By Bethany Morgan 
A regular meeting of the Mattapoisett Board of 
Selectmen was called to order on Tuesday, January 25, 1994 at 
7:00 pm by Chairman John N. DeCosta. Also present were 
Selectman Daniel O. Mahoney, Selectman Paul E. Lambalot, 
and Executive Secretary Carol Adams. 

Following the signing of the payrolls, Executive 
Secretary Carol Adams briefed the board on the status of a 
computer purchase intended by the Building Department. The 
computer, an IBM, will be compatible with the current Town 
Hall equipment and can be purchased a reasonable cost. The 
board then approved the minutes of the January 16 and 
January 18 meetings. 

Chairman DeCosta then noted meetings scheduled 
throughout the week, which include: 

• Wednesday, January 26 at 7:00 pm — Plymouth County 
Advisory Board regarding the Cranberry Specialty Hospital of 
Plymouth County. 

• Thursday, January 27 at 6:00 pm — Interviews will be 
conducted to review RFP's submitted for reconstruction of 
North Street. 

• January 27, 28 and 29 — Massachusetts Municipal 
Association's Annual Meeting to be held in Boston. 

Incoming correspondence for the week included a 
letter from Thomas Muldoon, President of the Mattapoisett 
Lions Club, requesting the use of Shipyard Park on July 15, 16 
and 17 for the Lions Club's "Harbor Days" festivities. 
Selectman Mahoney motioned to grant the Lions Club request 
which was unanimously passed by the board.

submitted their Division of Local Services "Bulletin," 
discussing the extension of waivers of net school spending 
requirements to certain regional school districts. The board 
stated that it would review this material at a later date. 

A memorandum was received from Fire Chief 
Ronald Scott with regard to Incident Command System 
Training (ICST) sessions to be held the month of February. 
Mattapoisett, Acushnet and Fairhaven will be instituting a 
joint training session. If unable to attend all classes in one 
town, classes may be made up in the others. Mattapoisett is 
scheduled to hold sessions on February 4, 11 and 18. 

The Massachusetts Audubon Society requested the 
board approve the posting of signs stating "Terns Nesting — 
These endangered birds are harmed by any disturbance - keep 
below high water mark at all times - do not enter area 
bounded by signs - please no dogs - posted by Massachusetts 
Audubon Society per order Board of Selectmen." 

The sign will be situated on Ram Island where the 
nesting of federally and state listed terns and piping plovers 
will soon begin again. The board unanimously moved to 
grant the request for the sign. 

Landfill Inspection Report No. 36 was received from 
Tighe and Bond. 

The Hands Across the River Coalition sent a notice 
that they will hold a rally on Sunday, January 30 at 2:00 pm at 
the foot of Sawyer Street in New Bedford. 

Executive Secretary Carol Adams reported that two 
transfers were requested from the Reserve Fund: one from the 
Veterans' Benefits and another from the Natural Resource 
Department. Because more veterans have requested funds 
than in previous years and the department's budget was cut 
by $5,000, the Veterans' Administration has requested a 
transfer of $5,000. The board approved the request subject to 
Finance Committee approval. Chairman DeCosta noted that

the state will reimburse the town for the distribution of these 
funds. 

Under the budget line for Dog Control, which now 
includes the disposal of road kill previously handled by the 
Board of Health, the Natural Resource Department has 
requested a transfer of $3,500. These monies will be used to 
maintain a five hour shift on Saturday and Sunday at a rate of 
$7.76 per hour through June. The board approved the request. 

Selectman Lambalot then briefed the board on the 
meeting he had with Harbormaster Steve Mach and Doug 
Cameron regarding repairs to the wharf boat ramp. Selectman 
Lambalot noted that the project is at least two years away 
from completion due to the permitting process and a public 
hearing that will be held before final designs are made. 

Among items under consideration are the extension 
of the ramp within the water and the location of a float. While 
designing the plan for repairs and reconstruction, 
consideration will be made regarding the fish migration, the 
town's accessibility to and from the bay, and critical time of 
use. Selectman Lambalot also reported that due to the ice now 
covering the harbor, nine piles have been moved and or 
broken by the ice and shifting tides, all of which are not 
covered under town insurance. 

Chairman DeCosta asked Selectman Mahoney to 
work on a draft article for the Annual Town Meeting warrant 
regarding the Marion/Mattapoisett/ Rochester Housing Co- 
op to defray the town's share of cost and operation of the 
office. The article, once drafted, will be sent to Marion and

Chairman Dougall noted a request from the Board of 
Fire Engineers to use the services of Town Counsel regarding 
construction of the East Marion Fire House. The board 
unanimously approved the Fire Engineers' request. 

Under the Department of Public Works (DPW) 
report, Superintendent Rob Zora noted that the department 
did some more spot sanding of roads this past week and the 
Oakdale Avenue sewer project remains on hold due to 
inclement weather. 

At 7:05 pm, Patricia Farrell of Continental 
Cablevision came before the board to discuss a proposed plan 
for a fundraiser to benefit the Music Hall. Ms. Farrell 
explained that the American Movie Classics station is offering 
a promotional program during the month of February. The 
promotion is centered around the screening of a classic movie 
and easily lends itself to tie in with the Music Hall cause. 

Ms. Farrell noted the promotion is called "An Old 
Time Evening At the Movies," and they have tentatively 
scheduled Thursday, February 24 to hold the event at the

drawing. Recommended ticket prices are $1 for children, $2 
for adults, and $5 for families. All proceeds will go to "Save 
the Music Hall." 

"What we need is your support and a license to serve 
wine in the Music Hall," Ms. Farrell said. 

The board was generally supportive of the idea, but 
Selectman Schaefer suggested they might want to have it on a 
Friday night, as the event seemed geared for family 
attendance. "I think it's a wonderful idea, but you might get 
more support on a Friday night," she said. 

The only other concern the board had was in 
granting permission to serve alcohol in a town building which 
is against Town By-Laws. Instead, Chairman Dougall 
suggested serving hot cider instead. Ms. Farrell agreed to try 
to reschedule the event for the following evening, Friday, 
February 25, and would inform the board to confirm that 
date. 

At 7:15 pm, Richard Murphy and William M. Booth 
of the Cable Advisory Committee came before the board to 
discuss the pending contract renewal with Continental 
Cablevision. "As the current license we have with Continental 
Cablevision expires in June, it will be incumbent on the Board 
of Selectmen to determine whether or not to renew the 
contract," said Mr. Murphy. "Our timetable requires us to 
have a recommendation to you by May 23 so you will have six 
weeks to make a final decision on the matter." 

Mr. Booth also submitted a summary of the results of 
a recent mail survey submitted to residents, from which the 
committee garnered some 500 responses — a 27 percent 
return rate. "Basically, most cable subscribers consented that 
Continental Cablevision had provided good service," Mr. 
Booth said. "Most of the major concerns centered around 
increased rates, the value they received for their money, and a 
desire for more stations which were not offered."

Mr. Murphy also noted that a Public Meeting is 
scheduled for Thursday, February 3 at 7:30 pm in Sippican 
School so residents can offer input on the cable company. This 
information, combined with a recent survey that was mailed 
to residents, will all be assessed in determining the 
parameters of the contract renewal. 

In the meantime, the Cable Advisory Committee has 
requested that an initial contract proposal from Continental 
Cablevision be submitted to them by February 18 for their 
consideration and recommendation to the Board of Selectmen. 

"There are still many concerns regarding the 
potential cost to the consumer and the increase in services and 
the future connecting of the system to local schools," Mr. 
Murphy said.

Patricia Farrell, who was still present during the 
committee's presentation, noted that Continental Cablevision 
would surely work to get an initial proposal to them by the 
February 18 deadline, although it is a short time in which to 
prepare a comprehensive package. "I also wanted to address the 
matter of the mail survey and mention that is was mostly based 
on people's written comments, of which there were only 200, or 
about 10 percent of the total population," she said. 

With three of the four towns which Continental 
Cablevision serves up for contract renewals this year — 
Wareham, Marion and Mattapoisett — the company will have to 
wait and see if they will maintain a local operation if one or 
more towns decides to pass on their renewal. 

Under incoming correspondence for the week, 
Chairman Dougall cited a letter from Police Chief Brian J. Scott 
commending Tabor Academy students and Don Wing for 
assisting the department in re-carpeting the floor in the police 
station's computer room. On January 17, a water pipe burst in 
the station, flooding the computer room and causing water 
damage to the ceiling and floor. Chief Scott wanted to publicly 
thank Tabor Academy for "being the consummate good 
neighbors they have always been." 

The board also received confirmation of the next Tri- 
Town Selectmen's Meeting, which will be held on February 23 at 
7:15 pm in the Mattapoisett Selectmen's Office. 

Dennis F Luttrell, Executive Director of the BBAC, also 
sent a request to be placed on the next Annual Town Meeting 
warrant to fund the organization with an annual donation of 
$600 to continue their efforts in and around Buzzards Bay. 
Selectman Schaefer recommended that the request be forwarded 
to the Finance Committee for their consideration. 

Lt. Gov. Paul Cellucci sent a response to the board 
regarding their recent support for ending the practice of 
diverting lottery proceeds throughout the state. Mr. Cellucci 
noted that he has forward the town's letter to Treasurer Joseph 
D. Malone for his consideration. 

There being no further matters to come before the 
board, they unanimously voted to adjourn for the evening at 
7:43 pm.

Rochester Selectmen's Meeting 
January 24, 1994 

A regular meeting of the Rochester Board of 
Selectmen was called to order on Monday, January 
24, 1994 at 7:00 pm by Chairwoman Lorraine Roy 
Hawkes. Also present were Selectman Michael 
Murphy and Administrative Secretary Shirley A. 
Ferreira. Selectman David L. Hughes was not 
present for the meeting. 

After approving the minutes of the January 
18 meeting via a majority vote of the board, 
Chairwoman Hawkes called upon Rep. William 
Straus to present to him the newly-made Rochester 
Town Flag — designed by Kathleen Hickey, 
Selectman Hughes' sister — which is to be hung in 
the Hall of Flags at the State House in Boston later 
this year. Rep. Straus noted that a special ceremony 
would be held sometime at a later date to install all 
of the new flags in the State House and he would 
contact the Board of Selectmen so that they might 
attend. 

Before he departed, Chairwoman Hawkes 
asked Rep. Straus if he had any notion of the 
direction the Education Reform Act of 1993 might be 
headed in terms of getting local aid back to the 
various municipalities throughout the state. 

"I certainly think we're going to be ahead of

last year," he agreed. "Gov. (Weld) just submitted his 
budget package for the next fiscal year and it does 
include some significant increases in state spending 
for education." Of course, even without a significant 
increase in state aid, Rep. Straus pointed out that 
Rochester should still fair well for fiscal year 1995, as 
it taxes at a higher rate than most municipalities for 
education. 

Rep. Straus was also asked about the recent 
questions concerning New Bedford's lack of water 
conservation in drawing from the area lakes. New 
Bedford has responded by saying they never 
reached a depletion level where it would require 
them to issue a water conservation notice to their 
residents. But Rochester residents are concerned that 
the water table level may continue to drop and a 
valuable resource may very well be depleted before 
anything can be done about it. 

"I don't know a great deal about the 
agreement that was made, but I do know that New 
Bedford acquired their water rights many years 
ago," Rep. Straus said. "I think they may be limited 
to the amount of water they can draw under a 
statute, but I'll have to research that." 

Chairwoman Hawkes then began reviewing 
incoming correspondence for the week, starting with 
a response letter from the Town of Lincoln, RI

regarding the Todesca Corporation which is 
planning to construct an asphalt plant in Rochester. 
On the request of an abutter, Shelley Visinho, the 
board asked the Town of Lincoln for an assessment 
of the company in question. 

The town's Director of Public Works, Robert 
C. Schultz, noted that the company placed an 
asphalt production facility in Lincoln for three state 
paving projects. Mr. Schultz noted in the letter that 
"without exception, (representatives from the 
Todesca Corporation) have always been forthright 
with our community and have been very considerate 
in fulfilling the special conditions we required." 

Chairwoman Hawkes asked that a copy of 
the letter be sent to Ms. Visinho. 

The Rochester Council on Aging sent the 
board a letter recommending Chris Cook and Harry 
Brown to fill two vacancies on the board. 
Chairwoman Hawkes noted that both candidates 
will be attending next week's meeting in order to be 
considered for appointment to the COA board. 

The Buzzards Bay Action Committee (BBAC) 
next sent their annual request for $600 in funding 
from the town to be placed on the next Annual Town 
Meeting warrant. This money will be used by the 
organization to seek further grant revenues on 
behalf of the BBAC municipalities. Chairwoman 
Hawkes asked that Ms. Ferreira place the request in 
the folder for the Annual Town Meeting warrant. 

Regional Conservation Agent Laurell J. 
Farinon next sent a request to the board for the 
Conservation Commission (ConCom) use of the 
services of Town Counsel to review amendments 
they have drawn up to the Rochester Wetlands By- 
Laws. The board granted the ConCom's request via 
majority vote. 

Ms. Farinon also sent a reply letter to the 
board upon their request for information regarding 
the Marantha Nominee Trust property located off 
Dexter Lane (DEP File #SE 72-59). Ms. Farinon noted 
that a site inspection was made by the Conservation

Commission on August 18, 1993 upon a request filed 
by Marantha Nominee Trust. The original Notice of 
Intent filing to rebuild one acre of cranberry bog and 
construct an additional five acres of cranberry bog 
was approved by the Rochester ConCom on 
September 21, 1993. 

In regards to an inquiry from the Board of 
Selectmen concerning the burying of debris in the 
northwest corner of the subject property, Ms. 
Farinon said there is no documentation regarding 
this matter. She assured the board that the ConCom 
will investigate this matter further and will handle 
the matter should any violations be reported under 
the Wetlands Protection Act. 

Town Accountant Claudette Coutu also sent 
notification to the board concerning questions 
recently raised about the payment of Police 
Department detail work and the withholding of 
taxes for said duties. Ms. Coutu noted that the 
Internal Revenue Service had advised her to 
continue using W2 forms for these details and not 
submit 1099 forms. 

The board then signed and approved a 
Statement of Account for Town Accountant 
Claudette Coutu to allow an excess expenditure for 
Highway Surveyor Jeff Eldridge to purchase sand, 
cutting edges for plows, and related snow removal 
suDDlies bevond his allocated budeet. With onlv

This approval allows Ms. Coutu to transfer funds for 
emergency snow removal purposes. 

At 7:20 pm, Library Trustee Elizabeth 
Hathaway came before the board in place of Kelly 
Hartley to inform the board that the walkway and 
ramp at the library need to be cleared in the wake of 
the recent snow and ice conditions. 

Chairwoman Hawkes noted that Bill Deacon, 
a local volunteer, has been in charge of clearing the 
walkway at the facility. Ms. Hathaway noted that he 
had in the past, but recently he did not clear the 
front walkway or entrance behind the building. 
Chairwoman Hawkes said the board would send a 
note to Mr. Deacon to clear up this matter. 

Dorothy Tuttle of the Friends of the 
Rochester Elderly next came before the board with 
fellow members of her organization to ask them if 
the town had some land they would be willing to

donate on which the group could build a Senior 
Center. The group has already begun fund raising 
efforts to build the structure, but needs to find an 
appropriate location. 

Chairwoman Hawkes suggested that a 
portion of the property on Dexter 's Lane might be 
available, but that property has also been earmarked 
for several other projects, including a new Fire and/ 
or Police Station and Little League Baseball field. 

"We have to leave enough room to think 
ahead," Chairwoman Hawkes said. "You'll have to 
come up with a building design before we discuss 
building it there ... we need to know how many- 
acres, more or less, you'd need for the facility. There 
are quite a few considerations." 

The group agreed to draw up some initial 
plans for the building and parking area and would 
come back to the board when they had a better idea 
of how much space they'd need. 

Civil Defense Director Paul Ciaburri next 
came before the board to discuss the town's contract 
with the Greater New Bedford Red Cross. Mr. 
Ciaburri informed the board that they had to sign a 
Statement of Understanding with the organization in 
order to be eligible for local relief services. The 
emergency services provided will remain the same, 
but the group now requires a written agreement 
from the town in order to absorb any liability claims. 

Mr. Ciaburri also noted that the 
Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency 
(MEMA) now has excess property on hand which 
has been seized in drug raids or is leftover military 
surplus which will be divided up among area towns. 
Rochester needs only to sign up to participate in this

program, but Chairwoman Hawkes said she wanted 
to hold off on signing this agreement until February 
21 when the full board would be in attendance. 

Lastly, Mr. Ciaburri wanted to know if it 
were possible to allocate some funding to purchase 
and install an emergency generator at Memorial 
School as it is the town's primary shelter site. As this 
is not a priority item right now, Chairwoman 
Hawkes asked that Mr. Ciaburri look into the costs 
involved in such a purchase and report back to the 
Finance Committee for next fiscal year. 

Fire Chief Joseph H. Clapp next informed the 
board that the town's new pumper/tanker was 
being built as they spoke. "The chassis is in and they 
are attaching the tank to it now in Florida," Chief 
Clapp said. "It will probably be up here in the next 
two to three weeks. We should have it up and 
running in another three or four weeks." 

Representatives from the Friends for Fun 
next came in to turn over to the town the 
playground equipment purchased in Phase II of the 
Gifford Memorial Park fund raising drive. "We've 
got all the equipment in now," said Linda Towers. 
"It's being stored in the barn at the baseball field and 
will be installed as soon as weather permits." 

The total equipment purchased for Phase II 
of the project cost $4,471 and includes one challenge

Chairwoman Hawkes noted that on behalf of 
the town, she appreciates all the Friends for Fun has 
done in making improvements at the park. "You've 
done a great deal for the children of the town," she 
said. "I'd personally like to thank you on behalf of

MBA to Sponsor Slide Show and 
Lecture 

The Massachusetts Boating Association 
(MBA), Inc. a non-profit statewide boating 
organization, will present a slide and lecture show 
by Larry Mahan of Marstons Mills, titled "One Boy's 
Dream — Building the Schooner Larinda" on 
Saturday, February 12 at 1:30 pm. The program will 
be presented in the Music Hall Auditorium at the 
corner of Front and Cottage Streets in Marion. 

The show will trace this immense project 
from Larry's boyhood dreams of "a boat able to take 
him anywhere in the world" and documents the 20- 
year project of Schooner Larinda that will see her 
launched later this year on Cape Cod. 

Schooner Larinda is a replica of an 18th- 
century schooner built in Boston and featured in 
Howard Chappelle's books History of Small American 
Sailing Ships, and The Search for Speed Under Sail. The

Schooner Larinda has been hailed as "an immense

The construction techniques, joining tradition

discovery of the plans, the innovative construction,

historic significance for Schooner Larinda's auxiliary 
power. 

Sailors and powerboaters, children, students, 
and adults — whether boaters, builders or history 
buffs, will marvel at the scale and the challenge (the 
engine alone weighs 14,000 pounds) of this boat- 
building, ship-powering project. The story of the 
Schooner Larinda is truly inspirational, and the MBA 
urges parents and teachers to bring their children 
and students. 

Admission for the event is $5 for adults, $2.50 
for students, and $1 for children under 16. All 
proceeds will be used to help continue the 
educational work of the Massachusetts Boating

Our speaker this month will be Charles 
Dunn. The topic will be the sinking of the "Ocean 
Rover" by the Confederate Raider "Alabama" in 
1862. Over 100 local people were involved in the 
subsequent claims process which attempted to 
reimburse them for their losses. Among the notables 
from town was Charles B. Hammond, a relative of 
our speaker, whose journals provide much of the 
information for the presentation.

Re: Full Page Advertisement, Freestone's Sponsorship 

Copy as follows: 

Fifteen years ago, March 9, Freestone's restaurant and bar opened its doors to offer casual dining and 
socializing in a wonderfully restored bank building, in the historic City of New Bedford. We were unable to 
open with the entire building restored. In fact, in early March of 1979, we contacted Tom Shire, then owner 
of the State Theater (the current Zeiterion Theater) to see if he had any extra theater ropes in order to sepa- 
rate the rear President's room from the rest of our restaurant. You see, we had exhausted our restoration 
budget and were ready to open the doors of our restaurant after five and one half months restoration, but had 
been unable to refmish the wood in the President's room. After three months of using red velvet roping from 
the State Theater, we were able to open the entire restaurant to the public on May 6. Slowly over the years we 
have added contemporary art, rebuilt our kitchen twice and continued to invest in our building and the 
people working within it. We are proud to have been able to support the Zeiterion Theater, responding 
immediately to a request from the SAVE THE STATE THEATER campaign to begin the restoration of the 
"new" Zeiterion Theater. We have been active on the Theater's Board of Directors and we were early corpo- 
rate sponsors, bringing the incomparable Dizzy Gillespie to the Theater on his 67th birthday in October of 
1984. We have also sponsored jazz greats Dave Brubeck, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Chuck Mangionc 
(twice), Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Hugh Mesekala and Tito Puente. This year we are expanding to the 
Freestone's Jazz Series, beginning with Delfayo Marsalis, continuing with Marcus Roberts Trio and finishing 
with Gary Burton in April. 

When sponsoring Chuck Mangione we dedicated our sponsorship to Mr. Charles Monteiro, an early 
Freestone's employee responsible for much of what we are today. This year we would like to recognize the 
contributions of Bobby Greene to the local jazz community. When Bobby first approached us over ten years 
ago to sponsor a segment of his Sunday morning jazz show on WSMU radio, we jumped at the opportunity. 
As anyone remotely connected with the jazz scene in Southeastern Massachusetts knows, Bobby was an 
ardent supporter of jazz in all forms. We miss his music and his humor; and dedicate this sponsorship to our 
friend, B Greene.

Parenting in the '90's 

Whenever parents are asked to suggest topics 
of interest to them in relation to their children, 
discipline always tops the list. There are literally 
hundreds of books, videotapes, and programs on the 
topic. If improving your parenting skills is on your 
list of New Year's resolutions, a new series now 
being held may be of interest to you. 

Parts two and three of a workshop examining 
effective parenting techniques will be held on 
Tuesday, February 1 and Tuesday, February 8 from 
7:30 to 9:00 pm in the Sippican School library in 
Marion. The first part of the session was held on 
Monday, January 25 and entailed the viewing of a 
video titled "What To Do Instead."

Mattapoisett Congregational Church 

Sunday Sermon 

We are facing a crisis in our nation and state 
which will impact upon our region this year. It is a 
change that can alter the entire character of the way 
we live our lives, and our expectations for the future. 
The tragedy of all this is that our government 
supports an action that is tearing apart the very 
fabric of our society. 

"No Dice" is the title of this week's sermon 
which will be presented during the 10:00 am Sunday 
worship service. Please join us. 
An Open Invitation 

Are you looking for a church which may be 
right for you? You are invited to attend the 
Mattapoisett Congregational Church located at 27 
Church Street in Mattapoisett any Sunday morning 
at 10:00 am. An informational meeting about the 
Congregational Church and the United Church of 
Christ led by members of the committees of the 
church and the Council will be held in the church 
parlor after the 10:00 am morning worship on March 
6. This meeting is both for current and potential 
members. 

Those interested in pursuing membership are 
asked to make an appointment to meet with the 
minister. A further meeting of the Board of Deacons 
will be held on March 30. New members will join on

a monthly television show on Continental 
Cablevision systems. 

Airing the first Wednesday of each month at

and vital health information that will help area

Donna McKane of Fall River, who traveled to Tobey

The show will also depict the experiences of 
four other families from around the country who 
have a variety of birth experiences under the care of 
certified nurse midwives. 

Tobey is the only hospital in southeastern 
Massachusetts to offer care by Certified Nurse 
Midwives (CNM), as well as obstetricians. Nurses 
McDonough, Murphy and Bastarache practice with

will include a full course dinner with wine plus an 
evening of entertainment including a magician and 
musical program. 

It is not necessary to belong to the Tri-Town

as in Webster's definition as "a company of equals or 
friends." The Valentine Dinner and evening is 
planned so the ladies who share their lives may also 
join together to share the spirit of St. Valentine on 
February 19.

Children's Literature at Plumb 
Memorial Library 

"Once upon a time." This magical phrase 
conjures up the image of a wide-eyed child waiting 
for the next sentence. Will he travel back in time, 
slay a dragon, or make a new imaginary friend? 

Sharing a book with a child is a special way 
of touching their life. The Children's Depot is 
currently involved in a campaign aimed at bringing 
children's literature to life through a variety of 
planned activities and presentations. 

As part of this campaign, the staff will 
sponsor a story hour at the Joseph H. Plumb 
Memorial Library in Rochester on Saturday, 
February 12 at 10:30 am. The theme of the storyhour 
will be based on the writing and artwork of Eric 
Carle. The children will be encouraged to create their 
own "Mixed Up Chameleons," "Very Hungry 
Caterpillars" and "Grouchy Ladybugs" as part of the 
presentation. 

The program is open to children ages 3 
through 6, and advance registration is required. Call 
the library at 763-8600, or stop by during library 
hours. 

The library will be closed on Monday, 
February 21, for the President's Day holiday. The 
library's regular hours are Monday, 4:00 to 8:00 pm; 
Wednesday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm; and Saturday, 10:00 
am to 2:00 pm. The library is closed on all major 
holidays.

Solgar's Commitment To Excellence 

Solgar's premium line of natural vitamins, minerals, and herbs represents a commitment to excel- 
lence since 1947. 

As a result of this commitment, we're one of the few nutritional supplement companies that actually 
make its own products. We manufacture and package our products in our own facilities in accordance 
with the Federal Food and Drug regulations. Production runs are planned so that fresh merchandise is 
always available. Throughout the manufacturing process, rigorous tests are performed on both raw 
material and finished product for potency, purity, uniformity, and disintegration. We absolutelv reject 
any product that does not pass our strict standards for quality. 

In fact, our commitment even dictates that we avoid ingredients which may be of concern to 
customers. We never add sugar, starch, salt, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. We ha|ve suc- 
cessfully eliminated potential allergens from most of our products, including dairy products, wheat, 
gluten, soy, corn, yeast, salicylates and animal derivatives. 

Our commitment extends to packaging, where we use amber glass bottles instead of plastic. 
They're better suited to maintain our product's potency, clearly show the vitamins inside, and are more 
environmentally friendly. In addition, our bottles are sealed to protect against tampering, and shipped 
to our customers directly from our own warehouses. 

Finally, we're committed to developing new products beneficial to health. An idea must be proven 
truly effective and safe before it becomes a part of a Solgar product. We design our products to reflect 
the most current scientific knowledge in the area of nutritional supplementation and human health. 

It's our commitment that's made Solgar's Gold Label the industry symbol of quality, and it's the 
reason why, as always, you can ... Be sure with Solgar.
